    Box #1 of ??? dropped off at FedEx this morning. 30 lbs heading to someone that has sent me boxes.

    I hope it doesn't freeze!

    Woa this thread is almost a year old!

    I've just went through this entire thread again, damn there's some pretty killer hauls in it so far. I've learned that there's some killer ba's. I've also learned since day one shreks been participating the most. Some one get that guy some beer! he's tired of watching paint dry Haha
     
  4. yea...and if I remember correctly there was a fair amount of time/activity on the old forum on top of this!

    Thanks for the bump, but I dont care when I get a box as long as I know I am going to get one. Cheers

    Box #1 is scheduled to land tomorrow. I am getting a little nervous about the weather so I'm going to wait to see how the first one does before shipping more. I have #2 ready but will probably wait until next Monday to ship.
    It's single digits here and may be in single digits in the landing zone tomorrow. I'm thinking this was not too smart!
    The good thing is that it's mostly high alcohol beers in the first box.
    >fingers crossed<

    I am happy to report that I got home early to get my son off the bus and was able to grab a chock full box from landrewg. All are safe with (16) 12oz bottles (4) 16oz cans, and one big Bolt Cutter. Plus a shitload. Of stickers. I have a few errands to run, will try to post pics later. Wish I could have one now, everything is nice and cold

    So glad they all made it! Box #2 will be geared more towards your favorite style. May not have the wow factor as the first...but, then again, maybe it will...
    As I said, I'll drop it off on Monday.

    It's pay back for making him wait almost a year to get a box lol.
